Kharia, D P (1981) A Glimpse of The Tata Iron and Steel Company Limited, Jamshedpur. In: International Symposium on Modern Developments in Steelmaking, February 15, 1981, NML, Jamshedpur.



Though the art of making iron and steel was known and practised in India since ancient times, and India's pre-eminence in iron and steel continued right upto the 18th century, the foundation of the commercial iron and steel industry in India was laid only with the establishment of The Tata Iron and Steel Company Limited (Tisco) at Jam shedpur in 1907 followed by The Indian Iron and Steel Company (Iisco), Burnpur, in 1937. Whilst elsewhere in the world far-reaching developments were taking place in iron and steel production, time in India stood still. The Indian craft had virtually disappeared by the beginning of the twentieth century.
